The contract, implemented through the Japan International Cooperation Agency, will realize from their side the Akita University, Japan’s space agency and the company “Mindek”, one of the largest mining corporations in the world. According to earlier estimates, the area between Bor and Majdanpek accumulated more than a billion tons of mining waste.

Preliminary data show that from these raw materials, by the latest technologies, could be got, at prices several times lower than those for standard procedures for obtaining the red metal, around – 100,000 tons of copper, whose gross value at current prices on stock exchanges is around – 700 million dollars.
